What is Bulimia Nervosa?

As with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa is also an eating disorder which causes people to obsess about their weight and food which they eat. Bulimic sufferers attempt to control their body weight and emotions by binging and purging.

Bulimia nervosa isn’t actually about food. Food is merely the drug of choice in an attempt to try and cope with emotional problems. The sufferer equates their self-worth to how much they weigh.

Regardless of how weight loss is achieved, bulimics have numerous physical, emotional and behavioural symptoms.

Bulimia nervosa is a complex disease and can be extremely difficult to overcome. Yet with the correct holistic treatment one can gain a more realistic, healthier sense of who you are, your body-image and self-worth. A healthier attitude towards food can be developed, as well as nutritive eating habits acquired.
